Correfoc: Run with the Devil in Spain
Palma de Mallorca
By Marisa Candia Cadavid and Carwyn Jones
23 Jun 2016

The origins of 'correfoc' - fire-running - date back to the 12th century. In Palma de Mallorca, as elsewhere in Catalonia, Valencia and the Balearic Islands, running with the devil eludes the attempts of the European Union to regulate its safety. It continues much as it always has.
